Fabulous 8.6 From 318 reviews

Very good 8.0
Great Location, Very Noisy.
You can't beat the location of this quaint, vintage hotel. It's close to everything, being ~150m to the Ponte Vecchio, and about a 10 minute walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station, 10 min walk to the Duomo, and 10 min walk to Pitti Palace. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating, and a nice breakfast was included in the room rate. The rooms were spacious by European standards and comfortable for a family of 4. The only detractor here was the noise (as mentioned in other reviews). Due to the positioning of the buildings, stone construction and narrow alleyways, everything echos (cars, groups of people, construction, etc.). Work crews were doing construction in the alleyway outside, setting up staging beginning at around 6:30-7:00 am, which sounded like bells as the pipes knocked together. This helped us get an early start for sure. That said, hotel staff were very accommodating and able to move us to an interior room that was more quiet.

Great Florence location!
This hotel is suited one block from the Ponte Vecchio. It was convenient to everything. The room was clean and neat. The staff was wonderful. A yummy breakfast was included. The highlight, however, is the terrace on the tower. The view was spectacular. We had drinks at sunset and watched the swallows diving. It was so peaceful up there which was a nice change from the bustle of Florence in the summer. Lots of great restaurants nearby. Highly recommend!

A Great Hotel for the Money in Old Town Florence
This hotel is in a wonderful location within walking distance to everything in old Florence. The bed was very comfortable, the room clean but old and without fanfare. The marble bathroom was updated and spacious. The building is a bit carved up but it is located in an ancient structure that adds to the charm. Breakfast had something for everyone and the roof top viewing deck and bar was a real gem! I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Lovely hotel in fantastic location!!
This is a lovely hotel with bags of character in the best location! A minute away from Ponte Vecchio and very close to Piazza Signoria. The tower bar is amazing and unique - the views are fantastic and the barman was absolutely brilliant and a great travel guide! The tower is a grand old building with loads of character. We stayed in 2 rooms due to our stay (I booked an additional 1 at short notice), in the tower annexe, and in the main building. The tower has only 4 rooms on the 3rd floor and there is also a small private roof terrace which was a great bonus. The bathroom was great and very modern. We stayed in a large suite in the main building which was much older but very nice. Would most definitely stay here again if back in Florence!!
